New Sky Academy Ambassador & rugby great Jonny Wilkinson recently participated in rugby skills program that was meant to inspire little students in exploring their rugby skills. The skill session was an initiative by Sky Academy and was hosted at Guildford County School.

It was Jonny’s maiden visit to the skill session as the new Sky Academy Ambassador where he met more than thirty eager students who were greatly benefited from participating in the Sky Sports Living for Sport. He was accompanied by mentors from Sky Sports Living for Sport Athlete, Rugby World Cup hero Maggie Alphonsi & GB Brown, captain of GB National Wheelchair Rugby squad. Brown held a practical session named “Six Keys to Success” that was themed around life skills & athletes identified them as helping aide in successful sports stories.

The Guildford County School students had this great opportunity to listen to Jonny as the rugby great went on to share his own personal experiences regarding life skills collected through sport & how those have assisted him both off & on the pitch.

“It’s fantastic to get up close with the students here. You could actually see that how much they’ve learnt from participating in Sky Academy & getting involved in Sky Sports Living for Sport program”, remarked Wilkinson.

“I taught them several skills & behaviours which I myself gathered from pitch over time which have been of immense help for me in every aspect of life.”

The PE teacher from the school, Nikki Sullivan stated- “Havi8ng greats like Maggie, Steve and Jonny here was a wonderful boost for the students. Their very powerful presence motivated the little minds to co9me up with their best potential in sports & beyond. Our students here have shown huge focus on ruby moves with Jonny.”
